Chris Loman, Mike Clark, Bunty Hudson and Archie Autton were in fine form, restricting their opponents to just six winning ends on the way to a 30-7 victory.

In a low scoring game, Burges Stace’s rink, trailing until the 18th end scraped home by a single shot at 15 to 14.

Neighbours, Phear Park, brought four rinks for another enjoyable mixed match which ended with Budleigh scoring 75 to the visitor’s 52. Leighton Burston, with Mike Clark and Joan Cowing won by 27 to 11 with the triples of Gerry Roberts and Rob Jerrard contributing plus 7 and plus four.
